AP freezes when opening a Publisher document while writing a PDF.

Recommended Posts

As the title says: You can open another Publisher document while Publisher writes a PDF of another document. But this causes Publisher to freeze. Better to not being able to open a new document then. Would be great however, if Publisher let me work on my document while writing a PDF of another document.

Does it freeze or just slow to a crawl? But I agree, it would be expected to be able to open a different document and start working on that while exporting.

I force-quit Publisher several times after approx. one minute with a motionless progress bar when the same PDF-writing progress took a few seconds otherwise. To me it looked locked up.

Have you saved the file as a copy and tried exporting from that? Quite often that changes things back to the few seconds for export or whatever. I currently have not experienced this behaviour, I need to get some heavy files made. 

<Old Man Rant> May be simply the age difference but one minute of nothing is ... well ... nothing in my experience. I will park my cursor at the progress bar's location then I go have a coffee/tea and come back, if it is still in the same place then there is a freeze. A minute is nothing, we are spoiled with SSDs verses floppy disks (Oh my god, what am I talking about... There isn't enough money in the world to make me start using floppies again). </Old Man Rant>
